Results for the 15-seat poll were announced late last night.
The Secretary to Government, Panapasi Nelesoni told Radio New Zealand International that several members of cabinet, including the ministers of foreign affairs, finance and health have been returned.
He said the MPs will return to the capital, Funafuti, where negotiations to form a government will begin.
A new government is expected to be formed by the end of the month, said Mr Nelesoni.
